CONCLUSIONS: It is known that CE can miss clinically relevant and serious lesions. Our results suggest that patients with an initially negative or inconclusive CE frequently have a cause of SB bleeding detected on repeat CE. The DY of repeat CE is highest in those with bleeding on their initial CE (83.3%) and lower in those with initially normal examinations (45.8%) or when an alternative cause, such as angioectasia is seen (14.2%).

This study is the first to determine corydaline, dehydrocorydaline, tetrahydropalmatine, palmatine, magnoflorine, jatrorrhizine, berberine, worenine, berberrubine, and coptisine, which adopted an ultrahigh-performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry, simultaneously.Materials and methodsChromatographic separation was performed within 8 min by using an Agilent SB-C18 column (150 mm × 2.1 mm, 1.8 μm) with gradient mobile phase consisting of 0.3% acetic acid water (v/v) and acetonitrile at a flow rate of 0.3 mL/min. Multiple reaction monitoring mode was used to dete...
